PLEASE LOCK YOUR VEHICLE. Most thieves are not willing to break a car window and make a lot of noise. We have heard reports from people who used to live or work in the city that locking your car won't matter because the criminal will just break the window and take your stuff anyway. You may be correct as far as the city life goes. But here in this town and in this area, people will report the sound of breaking glass and it will be investigated immediately. Criminals know this. PLEASE LOCK YOUR VEHICLE.
